Hungary’s anti-LGBTQ law comes into effect

A new Hungarian law that prohibits “promoting” LGBTQ content to young people comes into effect on Thursday. The controversial legislation has sparked a chorus of criticism, with European Union institutions threatening to take action against Hungary. The restriction on young people’s access to information about LGBTQ is part of a broader “Anti-Pedophilia Act,” which originally focused on tougher penalties against child abuse. But the Hungarian parliament last month passed the bill with further amendments, including a ban on sex education and media content.
